This months special:


Do you sew by hand?  This months special might just be for you.  From now until the end of June, all hand needles, redwork patterns and stencils are 20% off. Not sure how to do redwork?  We have a tutorial for that: How to do Redwork.

All our Spring and Summer paper pieced patterns are on sale, too.  This includes all paper products to make Half Square Triangles.  Last, but not least, we are offering 20% off our Villa Rosa patterns.

CLOSEOUT:  All Sulky 12wt and 30wt threads are half price. 

Did you know...

That we now sell the Accuquilt cutter and dies?  We are totally in love with this fast and accurate cutting machine.  Stop in on Saturday and either Penny or Cindy will be happy to show you how we cut the little cars for the 9th row. You might even go home with one:-))  Beep, Beep!

Top Off Day
Robbie Sutton, a long arm quilter and the owner of Pieceful Hollow Designs is at the shop every other Saturday from 11 - 12.  If you can't make it on that day, you can leave it at any time and pick out a quilting design from her design book. Robbie will call you when your quilt is done, and you can pick it up here any time.  Check the Calendar for the date of her next visit.

Sew Help Me!
Do you ever need help from another quilter?  Maybe figuring out how to put a block on point, or the best way to finish a binding.  Perhaps you just need a bit of inspiration or a nudge to finish that project.  Visit our new website which links to a series of articles and videos by different authors.  You will find your answer there!   Here are our latest articles:
